UPDATE: The poll is now open! Click here to vote for your favorite word of the year. And thank you to all who submitted ideas! 

It’s about that time of year for reflection. A time to look back on all the things you’ve accomplished, the changes that have occurred, and reminisce on the memories from the past 12 months. During your time of reflection, we want to ask you one question, “What’s been the most memorable thing that has happened in energy efficiency?”

Now that you’re mid-daydream, reflecting on 2018, we want to hear from you. Let us know what your top EE word of the year is for 2018!

We’re taking entries until 01/14/2019. At the end of the entry period, we’ll provide you with the top 3-5 words of the year. And then it’s your turn to decide. The winner will receive an Amazon Gift Card! So, go ahead and get to posting! We can’t wait to hear your word.
